    yes...I'm sorry nobody has answered you, I never get any replies on this site. Can't tell you why this happened, but I'm having the same problem if you read my last post. Good luck with your remaining chick.

    Thanks .. I think it has to do with Fukushima...Nothing grew right last year... to fast or to slow. I just added 3 eggs today. she seems ok to just do what she is doing... she started setting like 5 = weeks ago...

    I have had poor hatch rates and 3 or 4 hatch with yolks still attached. I just figure it is my incubator or hatcher.not sure how much radiation has made it to the east coast.

    I am having hatching problems too. Just the opposite. My last 5 eggs hatched between 19-20 days and still had the yolk sacs attached, I lost all of them:(

    Late hatches usually happen because of low temps. I've never hatched with a broody, so I'm not really sure what's going on. Could the eggs somehow be too cool? Is it cold where you are, or maybe drafty where the bird is? Could it be that she's letting them cool off at different points in the day, or leaving them for long periods? Just some of my thoughts. Someone with more experience might have a better idea.

    I had problems with my eggs hatching. I had the incubator set at 99.5. No eggs would peep on the day they were supposed to hatch. I remembered the last batch I hatched were really strong and hatch a lil early, but I had the temperature set to 101. So I raised the temperature and within a few hours I've got about 30 peeps. Temperature was to low. Hope this helps. No matter what you read do what you know works. I put m8ne at 99.5 bc everyone told me to and it wasn't the right temp.

    Did you help them out. What was the temperature set to if it was way to high this happens.
